Please listen to me when I say get rid of that toxic person in your life. Whether is a family member, friend, boyfriend, girlfriend, tell them goodbye. I have been off and on friends with this girl I met in seventh grade. Her name is “K” and has influenced me to write this because I have learned from her. She has always said things to my other friends about me. Like that I’m annoying, she’s better than me in sports, and that I’m rude. However, I probably can be all these things, but I’m confident in saying that the majority of my schoolmates don’t think these things. In fact they’ve told me and I don’t want to sound cocky but I’m pretty well-liked. At least it seems that way. (Trust me I’m not full of myself, actually I’m quite the opposite.) She always judged me for what I wore, my hair, makeup, and who I liked or hung out with. She controlled who I could be friends with and put me down.
Finally, this year I had had enough. I told her I didn’t want to be her friend anymore. The silence between us lasted months, but then I decided to try and be on good terms. I didn’t have to be close with her, or even friends, but I am able to be civil. She still talks about me and judges me, but I try not to let it bother me now that I know who my real friends are.
So I’m telling you, it’s not just a boyfriend you can break up with it’s anyone. And if you need to talk to someone I am always here. Remember, you have one life so make it the best and fill it with people you truly want to be around.
